      Heh, is it a Glowing Review or an Epic Rant? 17 pages written on just the intro, it's got to be one or the other. :D

      Its hard to say at this point, so far its been taken over by reminiscing about WFRP 1e. I will say that it has some big shoes to fill.

      I love the brash, bald-faced idea of the game but wish it was a tad more concise.

      Welcome to my life. I move hell and earth to ensure I am running a few games, but then get a total mindblank when I am meant to be prepping. What gives?

    I’m thinking no essence hit. Thought about this hard and dislike it. Optional madness perhaps. Tech costs money, but bypasses skill need
    1. Raleel

      Also, ripped out some quick and dirty drone rules on the BRP board that I’m mostly happy with. Still need some refining, but drones get STR, SIZ, DEX, INT, and POW.

      DEX and INT mostly for AP. INT represents AI. STR and SIZ determine amount carried (weapons). It’s essentially a manifested spirit, something like an undead spirit

      Think of the AI as the spirit part. You can drive it using your Binding skill equivalent and AP, or give it instructions and it does it ps thing using its AP and skill.

      That’s a pretty good idea! I’d use Sine Nomine’s Other Dust as a basis, at least for chargen.

    Choosing between D&D (ACKS) and Runequest (Mythras) is like having to choose between bourbon or scotch.

      Dunno, man, scotch's got the whole complexity thing going on for it. ACKS is pretty complex too. Maybe scotch vs. scotch is a better analogy? Speyside vs. Islay?

    Which series should I get into? Gentlemen Bastards or Prince of Nothing? Hyperion Cantos or Zones of Thought? (Feel free to suggest others)
    1. CRKrueger

      I'll suggest some others to help with the indecision. :D
      Stephen Saylor's "Roma Sub Rosa" Series (15 books)
      Bernard Cornwell's "Saxon Stories" Series (10 books)
      Bernard Cornwell's "Warlord Chronicles" Trilogy (absolutely awesome, Loz and Pete are big fans of Cornwell, Mythic Britain is inspired by this series)

      Personally, I'd start with Gentlemen Bastards, Prince of Nothing might be worth all the accolades, but I have a healthy skepticism towards Ubermensch protagonists.

    The trouble with crafting your own system is the fear that potential players will be too skeptical of "no-brand" and won't want to try it.

    TLJ is good. It’s no TESB or R1, but it’s much better than TFA (=big dumb ANH remake). A few good twists. Script could be tighter.
